Starsky & Hutch

Question: When Reese Feldman is on his yacht and shoots the guy for screwing up, he pulls a gun with a silencer out of a cooler. Why would you need a silencer in the middle of nowhere? (00:01:40)

Chosen answer: Feldman is the type of guy who wants to be as thorough as possible, as seen with his cocaine tasting like sugar and drug dogs being unable to smell it. He would not want any ships that could possibly be passing by to hear the shot.

Question: What was the dance move announced by the DJ at the disco, that is an 80's dance move and not a 70's dance move, which has been added as a mistake, as the film was set in the 70's?

Answer: The dance move could quite easily have been a known move of the time which only gained popularity in the 1980's. The same thing happened with Michael Jackson's "Moonwalk" which had been performed by dancers and mime artists for decades before he made it popular and widely known.

Question: What is the tattoo on Owen Wilson's upper left arm? It must be real because it looks like he had the same one in his other movie, "The Big Bounce".

ZipWin

Chosen answer: Owen Wilson's tattoo is a shamrock with the word "Lucky".

Question: Was that Justin Timberlake i saw on the far left of the screen after the dance competition?

Answer: No. If someone as big a star as Justin Timberlake was doing a cameo in a movie, it would be VERY well-known.

Question: The song being sung when we first see the gala at the end was used to open a romantic comedy, but I can't for the life of me think which film it was - can anyone remember?

Chosen answer: It's from Adam Sandler's film - The Wedding Singer.

Question: Why do Starsky and Hutch come back in the car after visiting Big Earl in the prison when they went to see him at the bar on motorcycles?

Answer: It's entirely possible, since they were not wearing their disguises at the prison, that they had already changed clothes, and therefore, could change vehicles.

Phoenix

Answer: They wore disguises to blend in the biker bar and talk up Big Earl as plausible drug dealers, but when they discovered he was in prison, they figured going in as cops would intimidate him and could offer him a deal. When they said they would get him a radio.

Continuity mistake: When Hutch tackles Starsky to the ground after his gun goes off in the disco, Starsky's badge falls to the ground beside his head. Hutch grabs it and holds it up, telling people to calm down, but when the shot returns to Starsky the badge is still there next to his head. (00:49:40)
